Few Questions About Cerium.

Recommended Posts

I collect chemical elements.

And recently received my sample of Cerium.


It is still sealed in its vacuum plastic bag.


This is my first lanthanide sample and I chose Ce because it was the cheapest I could find. Bought a 100g bar from eBay.


- Can I remove it from its packaging and handle it as any other metal?

- Can I keep it exposed in open air as all my other samples? (I don't care about tarnishing).


Unfortunately I don't have any airtight places or mineral oil to store it 😕
